See, a long time ago, there was this family.
He and his family would sing, and dance, and count their blessings.
But he also had a dream: to play for the world.
And one day he left with his guitar...
She could’ve made candy...
Or sparkly underwear for wrestlers!
Music had torn her family apart, but shoes held them all together.
That woman was my great-great-grandmother
"If it wasn't for my family"
"I don't care if I'm on some stupid ofrenda!"
"I don't wanna be in this family!"
Miguel sneaks inside Ernesto's mausoleum.
Miguel talking to Ernesto and apologizes to explain his reasons for taking the instrument.
Dante can still see Miguel
Héctor disguising as Frida Kahlo
Miguel turning into a skeleton.
"I give you my blessing to go home, to put my photo back on the ofrenda... and to never play music again!"
Héctor's photo when he was alive
Miguel ask Héctor if he can get him to his great-great-grandpa then he put up his photo.
"My guitar? My prized beloved guitar?"
"He's been forgotten. When there's no one left in the living world who remembers you, you disappear from this world, we call it the Final Death."
Miguel calls Dante a dumb dog
"I Have a Great-Great-Grandson?"
"Those were my songs you took! My songs that made you famous!"
"I'm going home, Ernesto. Hate me if you want, but my mind is made up."
Hector and Ernesto are walking to the train station. (Note: The train in the background is "The Constitution")
Héctor succumbs to the poison
Héctor enraged after learning the truth about his death
Realizing Ernesto is a murderous fraud
"I know you'll understand."
Miguel thrown down into the pit
Miguel realizing his mistake
"Who's a good spirit guide?"
Dante starting to transform
Miguel calls Ernesto a coward
"Héctor's the real musician. You're just a guy who murdered him and stole his songs!"
Miguel lost Héctor's photo
Héctor's photo is sunk, and lost in the water. Never to be seen, or found again.
Crushed by a bell... again.
"You have our blessing, Miguel. (Imelda: No conditions)"
Miguel's skeleton transition almost complete
"Here. This was his guitar, right? He used to play it to you?"
"Miguel, you apologize to your Mamá Coco!"
"Elena? What's wrong, mija?"
"Nothing, Mamá. Nothing at all."
The torn photo now complete.
"Papá was a musician. When I was a little girl, he and Mamá would sing such beautiful songs."
With the truth revealed to the Land of the Living, Ernesto is forever disgraced for his actions.
